Stair Safety

The smooth surface of hardwood or tile may pose a risk to some members of your household, and staircases are risky spots in your home for accidental falls and slips. Stair carpeting adds extra grip for your feet and a softer landing to ensure safety for your entire family.

Warmth in Cold Mars Winters

Choosing between the warmth of carpet or the elegance of hardwood is no longer a dilemma! Adding a soft, warmer carpet runner on top of your cold staircase makes all of the difference during the chillier months while still allowing your beautiful hardwood to peek through. As an added bonus, this extra layer not only insulates against the cold, but it also does an amazing job at reducing the noise of traveling footsteps.

Carpet Means Extra Protection

There is no doubt that your stairs receive some of the most foot-traffic in your Mars home. Your flooring there is more prone to scratches and scuffs from heavy wear and tear. Stair carpet runners are an excellent way to protect your other flooring investments with an added protective barrier. They are also far easier to maintain and clean!
